Since 1949, the CIBPA has provided countless members with the opportunity to network with individuals from all spheres of economic and social activities.
The question often asked regarding CIBPA membership is: "What’s in it for me?”. Joining the CIBPA is not like buying a consumer good; there is no clear-cut manner in which you can establish its market value or cost benefit ratio. There are, however, numerous excellent reasons that motivate adherence to our association.
NETWORKING & EVENTS
Networking is the business catch phrase of our times! The CIBPA Montreal chapter provides members with opportunities to network with over 350 members from all spheres of economic and social activities. CIBPA events not only provide excellent networking opportunities, but aim to be informative and educational. Members also benefit from discounts to events or obtain free admission when possible.
NATIONAL FEDERATION AND CIBPA CHAPTERS
The first CIBPA was founded in Montreal in 1949. Since then, several others chapters have been formed throughout Canada. CIBPA chapters now exist in Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Windsor, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Calgary, Niagara and Winnipeg. Members from different chapters are encouraged to connect across the country!
A WAY TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Through its annual bursary program, the CIBPA Foundation has raised and distributed funds to hundreds of university students, thus helping to ensure that economic hardship does not prevent young Canadian-Italians from pursuing their studies and an eventual career.
